VI. REVIEWS

All submitted papers are subjected to double-blinded review which is ensured by removing author’s data before sending the paper to reviewers. The papers with the positive review will be published and classified either as original scientific articles, preliminary communications, review articles or professional articles.

An original scientific paper presents the results of original research that were not previously published in either full or preliminary form.

A preliminary communication contains at least one new scientific fact or result that requires immediate publication, but it should not contain enough details to test the described results, as is the case with original scientific articles.

A review article contains an overall review of recent and current research in a specific area. Papers in this category are surveys in nature that should contain critical references and evaluations. The references must be complete enough to permit a good insight into the subject-matter.

A professional paper does not have to be based on original research, but it should contribute to the application of well-known research results and present theoretical conceptions.
